Audry and Michael

Audry: I love you so much, we are destined to be together
People will envy our love. I have told my parents i met the man i will marry.

Will you ever cheat on me?
Michael: If you stopped loving me, listening to me, being my friend: Probably.

Were you sexually abused? Why won’t you answer me?
Audry: Don’t worry about me, let’s just worry about ourselves. 
The key to happiness is selfishness.
Michael: No it isn’t, that’s ridiculous! It is in giving to others, and the other virtues!

Tell me how you feel, I can tell you are hurting.
Audry: I don’t believe in negativity! 
Michael: You are hiding from your past demons, your true self.
Audry: No I am not, I just do not give them attention!
I live in the moment and am a joyologist, the past is over.
My future is created by the present moment.
Don’t try to change me and I will not try to change you! 
Michael: I want you to encourage me to be more loving, giving and patient. 
Help me be a better person, change me, encourage me to be my best. 
Audry: No, because you want me to express my emotions, and I don’t believe in that!
Michael: Then you will hand your emotional demons down to our child, if you don’t heal them 
in you.
Audry: You are a mean cold hearted man, I would never hurt my child!
I do not love you anymore, stay away from me. 
I want nothing to do with you, I am moving away with my child.
Michael: You would take my child away from me?
Audry: I am not even giving it your last name!
Michael: You said we were destined to be together!
I would not have risked getting you pregnant if I knew!
We can work through this, at least for the first couple years. The child needs us both. 
Audry: I will not stay in a relationship for a child! my parents did that and my 
mother was a depressed, cold and unloving mother. My father cheated on her! I will not do 
that to my child! 
Michael: That isn’t why she couldn’t love you, 
It is because she refused to express her emotions honestly to her husband and probably her 
history of sexual abuse that she needed to heal. 
She believes the key to happiness is selfishness, you cant love or be loved by anyone with 
that belief.
The same things you do that cause your depression! 
Audry: Screw off, and never contact me again……

    I do not believe you are lying to yourself-- this was a piece rich with emotion and frustration, and Michael epitomized what love is supposed to be about.
